-Underneath Are The Everlasting Arms

Underneath Are The Everlasting Arms

“The eternal God is your refuge, and underneath are the everlasting arms.” Deuteronomy 33:27

Picture Frame Picture Frame

Are you sunk in depths of sorrow

Where no arm can reach so low?

There is One whose arms almighty

Reach beyond thy deepest woe.

God the Eternal is thy refuge,

Let Him still thy wild alarms;

Underneath thy deepest sorrow

Are the everlasting arms.

Other arms grow faint and weary,

These can never faint nor fail.

Others reach our mounts of blessing,

These our lowest, loneliest vale.

Oh, that all might know His friendship!

Oh, that all might see His charms!

Oh, that all might have beneath them

Jesus’ everlasting arms.
Underneath us – oh, how easy!

We have not to mount on high,

But to sink into His fullness

And in trustful weakness lie;

And we find our humbling failures

Save us from the strength that harms.

We may fail, but underneath us

Are the everlasting arms.

Arms of Jesus, hold me closer

To Thy strong and loving breast,

Till my spirit on Thy bosom

Finds it’s everlasting rest.

And when time’s last sands are sinking,

Shield my heart from all alarms,

Softly whispering, “Underneath thee

Are the everlasting arms.”
By A. B. Simpson (1843-1919)

Comfort In Times Of Distress
“The eternal God – He who was before all worlds, and will be, when time shall be no more – is thy refuge, or thy habitation or mansion (so the word signifies) in whom thou art safe, and easy, and at rest, as a man is in his own house … And they that make Him their habitation shall have all the comforts and benefits of an habitation in Him. And underneath are the everlasting arms – the almighty power of God, which protects and comforts all that trust in Him, in their greatest straits and distresses.’’
